SPI Fish Killer Charters

(4) Just booked!
5801 Padre Blvd
South Padre Island TX, United State…

My name is Paco Hinojosa, and I am a fishing guide on South Padre Island Tx.

My boat is a 25 ft. center console Panga. Powered by a NEW 2014 150 H.P. Mercury Four Stroke outboard. This boat offers plenty of room to spread out and fish safely. The boat offers a safe and smooth ride for up to 6 people when in the bay, and up to 4 people when offshore. The boat has high sides and a non slip surface making it safe for kids of all ages.

I offer Professional Bay Fishing rates.

The rate for professional half day of bay fishing is $375. This is good for 2 people 5 hours, and $75 for every additional person. If you want a full day, the rate is $700 for 2 people 8 hours, and $75 for every additional person. For professional fishing trips we do a variety of techniques. We can drift, wade, structure, top water, or bottom fish with artificial or bait depending on what the day demands. The fish we target for professional/experienced charters are Red Drum, Trout, Flounder, and Snook.

Bay trips have a 6 person maximum capacity.

Offshore/near shore fishing rate is $120 per hour with a 5 hour minimum. All offshore trips have a 4 person maximum capacity. The fish we target for offshore/near shore charters are King Mackerel, Cobia/Ling, Dorado/Mahi, Triple Tail, Red Snapper, Amber Jack, and Grouper.

All you need to bring on your fishing trip is your fishing license, snacks and any drinks you would like for the day. I have all the tackle needed and I supply the bait and ice. Availability changes from day to day, so it is always best to book your trip early.

About the Captain

Paco Hinojosa
South Padre Island, Texas, United States
Member since January 2015
I am licensed by the U. S. Coast Guard and I have fished the Laguna Madre since 1984 as a child learning from my father and grandfather. I have fished professionally from 2007 to the present. In my free time, I always try new spots and techniques to improve my success rate out on the water. I enjoy meeting people and introducing them to the great fishing in my area. There is something special about getting someone hooked up on a nice fish and watching their face light up, that makes my day.

Trip was awesome. We went out on the clock. Captain was ready to go, went out directly to the good spot. Bait was of great quality (a bit short but we were going through them like candy). Super friendly and funny, he understands we are going for a good time (some captains get a bit upset if you don’t know how to cast etc., Paco took the time to teach the less experienced ones).
Overall, if you want to go have a great time while actually fishing, book this one.

As a plus, he is fully bilingual.  Speaks Spanish if you are visiting from Spanish speaking countries or English equally good.

If I ever go back to SPIsland, I’ll definitely try to book Paco. We almost hit our limit!

He put me on the fish and I had a blast! Came in with beautiful fish, and felt like I had spent the day with a great friend. Highly recommended and I’ll be sharing Captain Paco’s info with all my friends!
